  • Resolved lookingahead

    (@lookingahead)


    HI there….

    Wondering: you mention user permissions but to what extent are users able to see things and not see things?

    I want to create private discussions — I would be able to set up users authorized to view these discussions, too. In fact, I would manage the whole process.

    What I need to have though, above all else: I do not want private areas to be seen at all. Meaning, not in search. Not even a title that someone can see to click on. For all intents and purposes, any area they have not been given permission to access does not exist. Completely invisible to them, in every sense of the word.

    I also want to make sure I can turn off the ability for users to edit their comments or delete their comments. That way, if there are any “shenanigans” on my site, I’ll have a record of it.

    Thoughts?

    Hi

    You can set discussions’ privacy levels so that only users with certain roles can view or post. With the Pro version, you can set different levels for different boards.

    To ensure that topics are not seen in search, it’s probably best to use an SEO plugin as well, so that you can specify pages and post types that are NOINDEX.

    Users can’t edit their comments.

    Thanks

    Gareth
